Bio and Links
Bio Photo I recently read on another bio, "our ancestors can't tell us where they are buried, we have to find them." So true. I'm so thankful to all the volunteers that have registered the graves in their areas. My personal goal is to help register graves in my area that will hopefully help others locate the final resting places of their loved ones.

Please remember that while FindAGrave is a great tool to use in genealogy research, the clear mission of FindAGrave is to register the graves. If you are new to FindAGrave, please click on the "Help with FindAGrave" menu selection and read the FAQ before starting.

Yellow daffodils I've placed on a memorial usually signifies a connection to me in some way.

I'm happy to transfer memorials within the FindAGrave guidelines found in the FAQ (and I'm somewhat flexible on that). To request a transfer, click the "Edit" tab on the top right of the memorial and then "Suggest a Correction" tab to send me a note requesting the transfer, indicate HOW you are related, and don't forget to provide your Member ID. I'll consider all requests, but you might want to consider building a Virtual Cemetery (see FAQ).

I'm also more than happy to provide links where the final disposition is known or add additional information. Again, click the "Edit" tab and "suggest a correction" to send this information.

A word about photos I've placed on memorials. I'll gladly give you permission to use my photos if you ask me, indicate that I have granted you permission, and provide a link to their FindAGrave memorial. I have found several of my photos posted in family trees on the web without my permission and without a source to FindAGrave. This is a copyright violation and poor research sourcing. Again, please just do the right thing and ask if you'd like to use anything I have posted on any of the FindAGrave memorials.

To all the volunteers that walk through long forgotten, overgrown, tick and snake infested cemeteries, taking photos of all gravestones (even broken or half buried ones), and create memorials, thank you. Those gravestones may disappear or become completely unreadable in the future. For your efforts in registering the graves, thank you for all you do.

Happy hunting!

Request Permission to use a Photo
I would like to use a photo you have of Daniel Quirey's (15027631) headstone.

In doing research on my Quivey ancestry, I believe that Daniel's last name was misspelled and should have been inscribed as Quivey.

I plan on establishing a Find-A-Grave page dedicated to Daniel Quivey and would like the use of your photo. (I also will post 2 scanned images of diaries mentioning Daniel Quivey's death at Fayetteville, Arkansas to back up my claim).

In addition, I'll make references and links on the Daniel Quivey page to the Daniel Quirey page.

Sincerely,
Michael Wilson

RE: request for photos
sorry for the delay in responding. Find a grave did not let me know you had responded and I didn't check my messages until now. Someone else saw my request for photos and took them and posted them. Thanks for offering to do this.

memorial malfunction
Hello S. Barger,

I am not able to view the memorial you set up for Nancy Caroline Foster Tuck...a message comes up saying there is no memorial for this person, but you have it under her Father's memorial Anthony J. Foster.Is there any way you can resubmit this memorial? I greatly appreciate your time and effort.
Thank you,
Juliann Young

James Henry Roper obituary
Might you please tell me in which newspaper the obituary of James Henry Roper is? I would like to find the obituary of his wife, Minerva Penrod and will begin by searching the same newspaper.

Thank you so much for your time and effort!
